who need help. in the guest spot today, dr. ron steinguard, a child psychologist. i think it's so important to talk about mental health and i think we need policies that support that conversation. we have a law on the books. in 2007 the senate passed the nix improvement act and decides who gets guns essentially and required states to report that those adjudicated by a court to be mentally ill or a danger to themselves or others or suicidal to this nix board. i don't know that that's sufficient. it's a good start. what else can we do in terms of policy to support a better mental health system? >> you know, i think that's interesting because the way that's framed it actually connotes that mental health's the only arena that you need to be careful of vetting looking for gun control and an implication that's a group to be separated for some reason that they need special care. i think the way you framed the segment was that this is something that we don't normally like to talk about. i think was the way you started this particular segment. i think, unfortunately, this is the only time

leagues in the area. the reality is this. in the football coach ron we always talked to fight through it. the breaking point as we talk about earlier when you come to the realization of who do we leave this responsibility, and this responsibility to? at some point we have to take that responsibility from the coaches and even the leagues because many leagues i work with our own, not governed by u.s. a football at pop warner. scott can't come down until every coach in the united states of america that this is the way you need to do it so what we try to do with the league and i will share this as an example that this is what you are fighting at the grass-roots level, number one, i played eight -- we went to a league and approached the league and did you know what we want to do? we played at the highest levels so there is a model standard already out there. be nfl and the nfl p a set the standard for you've coaches. the problem is they don't embrace changes because it is all about winning. when it is good, nobody remembers years from now. what matters is the effect of the game. what we tried
the citizens of kentucky. benton, who ran ron paul's presidential campaign, says this was not directed specifically at ashley judd. is there benton preparing for a political campaign for a personal assassination. >> this is the way mcconnell has always run his campaigns. it's never to talk about what he's done for kentucky and what his vision for the future of kentucky is. it's always about making sure that whoever is running against him is unacceptable and spending whatever it takes to do that. so, you know, i think it would be interesting. ashley judd is a very, very popular figure, and you take on somebody with that -- who is that well-known and who is that popular, you go negative on them at your own peril. people don't like that. if they have a very good feeling about the candidate. so, you know, we fully expect he would run that kind of campaign against any opponent, but against ashley judd, i think that's problematic for mcconnell. >> i think it is. let me ask you about senator mcconnell's effort to filibuster his own idea on avoiding future fights over the fiscal cliff. how can
the company around by ron johnson, the guy who created the apple store, and best buy because its founder seems hellbent on taking the company private. penney was on the ropes until recently when we learned from manny tirico, right here, the terrific ceo of pvh, phillips venue and izod, you know all those great brands, tommy, calvin klein, that penney's has started to order a ton of merchandise from pvh for its store within a store. in fact, his comments marked the bottom in the stock. as i pointed out at the time, i shopped jcpenney on tuesday and it was actually quite nice. i had lost this really good hat. if anyone knows my hat, please give it back to me. i went to buy it and they were all out of them. at $21 jcpenney can go higher even without additional news. best buy, i think the fundamentals here are on the decline. it feels terminal to me. so it seems a little ridiculous to own the stock. just as i think it's a little ridiculous that schultz, the founder, can get the financing to make the takeover that he so desperately seems to want to do. let me close by saying i totally understand th
and deductions as part of the so-called fiscal cliff. ron in indiana. caller: the first young fellow. the question that i wanted to ask. everybody is talking about raising taxes on the job creators and they will not create jobs. these bush tax cuts have been in place. how long will it take to see the job? host: what do you think of the deductions? you think they have been a part of the tax code lot of that americans cannot do without them? caller: some of them need to be part of the negotiations. middle class people, we cannot. forget them. but the upper class, they get the big tax cut. the middle class does not hardly see these deductions. and especially those that give you these deductions, they give you loopholes. host: let's go to curtis dubay to get a response to that. our caller was talking about if you have the means to hire someone that has the ability to look through the deductions you can get a much better break. is it fair? guest: if you do not have someone to show you how to do it, it can be hard to take them. but for the most part, most people will take the standard dedu

. first and foremost, because of anchorman 2, the legend of ron burgundy continues. right? when i first saw this movie in 2004, i just immediately rushed out, bought my sex panther cologne and have been spearing people with tridents ever since. what bodes well for this one is they wayed a long time to make this one and the entire cast is back. great sign, and even though the first one was kind of lightning in a bottle, i have my fingers and toes crossed. >> i feel that i truly am the model for ron burgundy, if you look at my facebook page with the early pictures of me, i am that man. excited about the sequel. >> i love it. you have the voice too. >> thanks. how about some others besides anchorman? we've got iron man, no direct reference to me, but what do you think of that one? >> no, i don't know about that. look at those bicepses. now, "iron man 3" is led, again by robert downey junior who i think was born to play this role and based on the trailer, this one looks pretty dark. it looks very dark nooistesque and this is when robert downey junior can really show us his acting chops. dir
director for the dr. ron cruise who is a retired army chaplain. good morning to you, sir. >> thank you for having me. >> gretchen: we see a situation in west point. one cadet who was an athiest felt uncomfortable with taking part in involuntary prayer, your reaction. >> it is a shame we don't respect the pluralism. can prayer in west point went back from the founding of our country and we need to respect the religious beliefs of all. those who believe and those who don'tment those who believe have every right to prayer and those who don't believe opt out of the prayer. we need to remember that our founding fathers, george washington upon his appointment as commander-in-chief in the army. one of his first acts was to ask congress to authorize chaplains in every brigade so that religious services could be held. prayer is fundament will in the lives of our soldiers from the beginning of our country and west point would do well to resist efforts by athleast advocates. >> i read a portion of that statement from the group that wants to do away with it. they gave the academy 30 days to end pr
representative ron kirk is also on the mentioned list in terms of retiring. host: but none of those formally? guest: not official . host: has anybody said i'm sticking around? guest: that would be kind of unproforma but i think kathleen seebluss said she would like to stay because of the implementation of the health care law. no one announces that. they kind of get the word out there. there have been some talk about whether eric holder will retire but he told people he would like to stay for a year or certainly until september when we're likely to get a new f.b.i. director. host: if you're not leaving immediately at the end of the first term are you expected to stay for all four years of the second term or is there another dated where turnover occurs? guest: the way i understand it is if president obama has told people if they do stay he wants them to stay for at least a year because he doesn't want to spend all of his time filling these jobs. so the rule of thumb is if people are still in place at the end of january they'll probably stay for the entire year. host: we're taking your calls an

in ron brownstein for "the national journal." >> good morning. >> good morning. we're talking about this whole idea of a fiscal cliff was absolutely not supposed to happen. >> this was a machine that the two sides built to give guy them more will power to do what they didn't want to do to begin with. which is compromise. they could not reach a deal to destabilize the federal government's long-term finances so they built this to put more pressure on themselves to reach a deal now. and even this does not seem to be enough to do it, to force them to make the difficult concessions that are required for the two sides to come together this is indignant of a broader problem we face of a red coalition and blue coalition that reflect very different visions of american and show less and less cooperation. we are looking at a dividing government for the next two years and more likely next four years. if they can't make an agreement on this, how will they make progress on anything else? >> divided government that is getting deeper red, deeper blue, right? and there doesn't seem to be any clear l
